Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked The World


Spotlight Event with acclaimed musician and Rumble Executive Producer Stevie Salas in person! Saturday, November 11 at 7:00pm only. Private reception after this screening with Stevie Salas exclusively for All-Access Passholders.
(Film screening only on Thursday, November 16)
The rocking documentary Rumble at long last reveals the untold story of a profound, essential, and, until now, missing chapter in the history of rock n’ roll: the Indigenous influence. Investigating the influential careers of such performers as “Queen of Swing” Mildred Bailey, Delta bluesman Charley Patton, Jimi Hendrix, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Redbone, Robbie Robertson, and Link Wray, whose iconic counter-culture anthem from 1958 lends the film its title – and, for what it’s worth, is still the only instrumental song to ever be banned from the radio –Rumble shows how these talented Native musicians helped shape the soundtracks of our lives. Inspired by the Smithsonian Institution exhibit “Up Where We Belong: Native Musicians In Popular Culture,” created by Tim Johnson and Stevie Salas for the National Museum of the American Indian, the film features electrifying performance footage and engaging testimony from a long list of music artists, historians, and experts, including Steven Van Zandt, Iggy Pop, Tony Bennett, Taj Mahal, Martin Scorsese, John Trudell, Steven Tyler, George Clinton, Stevie Salas, Slash and many more. An eye-opening look at a little known but vitally important component of American popular music, Rumble is an astonishing documentary that shines a spotlight on generations of phenomenal artists for whom recognition is long overdue. (Dir. by Catherine Bainbridge & Alfonso Maiorana, 2017, Canada, 103 mins., Not Rated)
